Tracking my (planned) weight loss…

Like many others, my mind turns to weight loss at this time of year. Somehow, I managed to put on a kilo and a half just over the Christmas break! Somehow? Who am I kidding? It was most definitely the week of champagne for breakfast, three heart-stopping meals a day and every other drink in ...

Blackberries are not the only fruit… for Orange

This morning's Guardian is reporting that Orange is considering dropping the new Blackberry Bold from its handset offering due to continuing software problems. It seems to me (someone who hasn't ever owned a Blackberry, or even used one for more than a few minutes) that this handset has been plagued with both problems and - ...

A sad loss…

Eartha Kitt passed away the other day. I was a big fan, having first become aware of her watching re-runs of Batman (where she played Catwoman) and then again in the 80's when she released new singles for the first time in years. An amazing entertainer, her own woman to the end, she stood by ...

Predictions for Macworld

I can't believe it's come around again... it seems like only yesterday I was wading knee-deep through outlandish claims and rumours regarding what new products Apple would announce at Macworld. Hands up: I'm a Mac geek. A "fanboi", if you will. I've been using Macs for over 10 years now (so not a recent convert) ...

Ethnic strife in Wapping!

Well, not quite. But recently, I met some of our neighbours (we live in an apartment) and found that we were all being disturbed by the noise coming from the same apartments.

Oh come on…

Tesco are already selling Easter eggs. Just days after Christmas. I mean, come on - what the hell? And Easter isn't even until April in 2009. It's beyond greedy, it's cynical and frankly quite depressing. I was amazed at how early the Christmas music and decorations appeared in shops this year - I hear Christmas ...

Cyber-skiving today?

Cyber-skiving today? You're not alone | News | guardian.co.uk. Ah good. Glad it's not just me, then. Various social netwrking sites have been calling at my attention since sitting down at my laptop this morning. And, since work is rather quiet today, their voices seem all the louder. According to the Guardian, Those of us ...

The project continues…

I'm amazed at the response I've had to my online Doctoral research survey. Thanks to all who have participated so far. If you're interested in Work-Life Balance and would like to take part, you can do so here: http://tinyurl.com/6m8k7o. I'm interested in examining how demographic factors such as gender and sexual orientation impact our experience ...

Another reason for staying indoors this evening…

...it's going to be FREEZING here in London: The country is on course to experience its coldest December in more than 10 years as chilling winds blow in from Eastern Europe. Those out celebrating the New Year are being warned to wrap up warm and take care on icy pavements as temperatures plunge to 24.8F ...
